Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
On September 20, 2018, Grom Social Enterprises, Inc. (the “Company”) had outstanding loan balances of $1,194,333 and $840,666, due respectively to Darren Marks, its Chairman and Melvin Leiner, its Executive Vice President, COO, CFO and Secretary. These loans are non-interest bearing and are due on July 1, 2018. Effective September 20, 2018, the Board of Directors approved and Messrs. Marks and Leiner agreed to convert an aggregate of $500,000 of their combined loan balances into shares of our Common Stock, at a conversion price of $0.31 per share, which was above the closing price of the Company’s common stock of $.25 on September 18, 2018. Mr. Marks converted $333,333 of his loan into 1,075,268 shares; and Mr. Leiner converted $166,666 into 537,634 shares. As a result of the transaction, Mr. Marks and Mr. Leiner’s loan balances were reduced to approximately $861,000 and $674,000, respectively. Mr. Marks and Mr. Leiner now beneficially own 16,070,649 and 9,850,000 shares of our Common Stock, respectively.
The Company relied upon an exemption from the registration requirements under Section 4(a)(2) under the Securities Act of 1933 and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated thereunder with respect to the foregoing issuance.
